there was no guiding. there are people doing that thing? you think they're guiding them from the ground? over ongoing violene in the city as police continue to search for the suspects who shot and wounded a toddler. plus movement on a new oakland a's home in las vegas grinds to a halt as nevada lawmakers balked at the nearly $400 million price tag. it's all happening right now on the four from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth oakland police today are walking back the announcement of arrests in the case of an attempted robbery of a nanny, which left a toddler injured by bullets. shrapnel welcome to the four everyone. i'm greg lee alex savage. the department clarified today that no one is in custody despite announcing arrests at a crowded public meeting that
happened last night, our crime reporter henry lee, joining us now live from the newsroom with the latest on this investigation, henry alex and greg. those arrests turned out to be linked to other robberies in oakland and crimes in a different city. so as it stands, no arrests have been made in this incident, and the girl's mother is asking the department to spare no resources and bring whoever is responsible to justice. an about face in the oakland police investigation into a robbery attempt of a nanny that left a 15 month old girl injured by shrapnel at a crowded safety meeting wednesday night at a church. a top police officials said that arrests have been made in the case. but on thursday, the department confirmed that no one was in custody. deputy police chief james beer had told the mother of the child, the suspect was caught. beer also said this i think we still need to do more investigations to find that. that person that's responsible and the people that were with them. the mother was wrecked with the emotion at the meeting. i really didn't want to be here today. i want to be the
daughter. it's trouble. cute. just you. on tuesday. the mother carried her daughter to an ambulance after the incident on trestle glen road. the nanny told me she was pushing the little girl in a stroller home from a park when she was confronted, she says. she began struggling with the man over her purse, and then he fired a shot into the ground that left the girl with lacerations. at wednesday's meeting, the mother told oakland police she didn't expect to be picking bits of shrapnel from her daughter's shoe. i want kids and children walking. i had a one stop. some of the audience wept. after she spoke. the mother got a standing ovation is nothing i can say. there's nothing i can do. to make any of this right deputy chief also said that during the investigation, police had recovered a gun that matched the caliber of the bullet that was fired. you can see the strike mark here on the sidewalk. the
gun that was found and the bullet casings from the scene have been submitted to a crime lab for ballistics testing in the newsroom. henry lee ktvu fox studios, henry thank you, the oakland a's are running into some funding problems as they try to make a move to las vegas , according to the nevada independent lawmakers, and in that state have not yet introduced legislation that would green light public money to build a new stadium along the strip. $195 million for the ballpark, not the $395 million. the a's are asking for and the clock is ticking to approve a funding package with just 20 days left in the nevada legislative session for the latest on the situation unfolding in vegas. we are joined live now by reporter tabatha mueller. from the nevada independent tabatha really appreciate you taking the time today. so a lot of us here in the bay area looking at this and wondering is the a stadium deal
in vegas in trouble. you know, i don't think we can say right now. i think it's a matter of when that legislation comes through. right that's what everybody is waiting for. is the formal bill language to drop. we know that you know, there are folks that are interested in the legislature, saying that there may be willing to give anywhere from 150 to $195 million in transferable tax credit. is part of the puzzle right? they're still waiting on clark county in terms of money to come in to maybe complete thation. the tear part of some of the delays to i think are because of the a sort of switching stadium sites, and there's lots of discussions going on, so it's just kind of we're in a waiting game limbo or purgatory, so to speak, waiting to see how much money the clark county is willing to put up, and then lawmakers want to come in and sort of formulate their deal for public funding. as you pointed out here, the a's initially were focused on one
site there in las vegas, and then they shifted over to wanting to build at the site of the tropicana hotel. how much do you think that has played into the fact that you don't yet have a concrete deal? so we spoke with sources who are familiar with the situation and i definitely think that's part of the deal. that's part of the issue is wrong right? they said that the a's flip flopping on a stadium site and not having a concrete solution or not having a concrete proposal is part of the hold up here. alright so initially, the a's looking for that $500 million in public funding that obviously dialed back now and now they're asking for 395 million all told here. why why did they dial back the request? what kind of signals were they getting from? from lawmakers in the state of nevada about the amount of public funding that that might be available to them. so i think lawmakers said $500 million is a lot of money to ask for. they said, you know, see if you can
find another solution because their negotiations that are going on. i think part of it as well comes down to them being able to get the tropicana site or, um, yes, the tropicana site for free as as kind of a gift from the owners of it. okay so, as we pointed out here at the top time is not on the side of the oakland a's here. we have fewer than 20 days left in the nevada legislative session right now, what do you think, are the chances that both houses of the legislature somehow come together and approve of public funding package by this june 5th deadline that's coming up. i think it's possible, right? you never want to say that anything is totally dead ever or out of the question. but i do think that the clock is ticking. i know that lawmakers said. you know, you have a warning. we would have liked this two or three weeks ago, so i think it's possible for this to happen. however um, i do think it's
going to be a struggle. and if they don't meet the june 5th deadline, if the deal doesn't get done by then, is there a chance that there could be a special legis? slate of session. yes there is a chance that could be a special legislative session . i don't think anyone is very excited about it because when nevada's legislative session works is that they meet for 120 days every two years so to go into a special session in a year when we already had a regular session is going to cost the taxpayers more money. um you know, lawmakers are going to maybe have to change their summer plans. including journalists and other folks working in the building, so i think there's not a huge appetite to go into a special session, and clearly the clock is ticking for the aids to get a stadium deal done in las vegas really appreciate the inside tampa to mueller from the nevada independent, nice talking with you. thanks for having me on and coming up in just a few minutes here on the four. today we are going to be joined live by oakland mayor shane tao. we are going to ask her about the oakland a's potential move to las vegas and some of the
negotiations that we just talked about unfolding there in the state of nevada. we are also going to ask her about renewed concerns over public safety in the city and the effort to try to hire a new police chief, as well as a new fire chief in the city. there is more fallout today over a decision by the los angeles dodgers to un invite the sisters of perpetual indulgence from its upcoming pride celebrations. the los angeles lgbt center is now withdrawing its participation and calling on the dodgers to cancel the event . ktvu elissa harrington has more of the team's decision, and the criticism is now facing we're used to being thrown under the bus, so it doesn't come as a surprise. it never feels good. but we get it sister unity with his sisters of perpetual indulgence chapter was honored to find out the dodgers plan to present the group with the community hero award at the team's pride night in june, but suddenly, the sisters were disinvited. the award rescinded. in a statement, the dodger said , given the strong feelings of
people who have been offended by the sisters inclusion in our evening and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of pride night. we're deciding to remove them from this year's group of honorees were looking forward to having that moment at the microphone to say our message, which is there's room in the world for everyone to be who they are, as they are free from guilt and shame. the dodgers decision followed criticism from the catholic league and from florida senator marco rouz. rubio who accused the group of mocking and degrading the faith. sisters aren't mocking anyone. the sisters are expressing themselves. they are core institution in the l g b t q community and i'm proud of them. state senator scott wiener said the charitable group has done important and life saving work. the sisters of perpetual indulgence first started in san francisco in 1979 and now have chapters worldwide. absolutely floored that a california sports team, uh, would would would kick out some drag queens from an
event sister. unity wanted to be clear. they are not anti any religion. they even have some catholic members while they are disappointed to miss the dodgers pride night, we will return our focus to what we've always done. we'll go back on the streets of los angeles and look for the people who whose voices are never heard. i'm elissa harrington ktvu, fox two news. in a statement from the l. a lgbt center, rebuking the dodgers decision, the organization the exclusion of theof anti lgbtq plus legislation are on the books, many of them targeting freedom of speech in the bodily autonomy of our community. the fight for lgbt q . plus rights is as critical as ever. and unfortunately, the dodgers toast to bow to the religious right rather than stand with our lgbtq community.
san francisco is now the first city in the nation with a drag laureate, well known drag performer at night club owner darcy drooling er has been appointed to the position by mayor london breed drooling will have a wide range of responsibilities, including producing and participating in drag events and serving as a spokesperson for san francisco's lgbtq plus community. the city's inaugural drag laureate will also be tasked with helping to ensure the city's drag history is shared, honored and preserved. i think having the drag laureate position takes what we're doing and really elevates it and gives it a deeper amount of credibility. i think that it, francisco acknowledges us for what we've done already. but to put this on sort of a national stage really does make a profound difference, and i hope it inspires cities across the country and the globe to do the same. mayor breed
called rolling her bright star in san francisco, praising her for her advocacy and for elevating the city's drag community, drawing her will receive a $55,000 stipend in her 18 month role. all right, turning now to bay area weather meteorologists. mark tamayo joins us now from the weather center. how's it looking out there? mark there, greg. not too much change this week. the heat from yesterday. we've definitely cooled off from earlier in the week. and main reason is, we have a pretty healthy marine layer a lot too low clouds and fog just offshore. just a couple of days ago, we had a shallow marine layer and has deepened a little bit and the net result for everybody is a cool down here in the bay area so that the major heat is out of here is still a few locations. warming up into the mid to operate eighties. but here's the satellite. this looks like the middle of summer, doesn't it? lots of low clouds and fog. this is from earlier today over the past six hours of the satellite imagery, and here you can see still some overcast out towards half moon bay right around pacifica is becoming closer to a san francisco looks like half of san francisco in the fog here

um a few the a's crime and public safety and the firing of police chief laurent armstrong. and the mayor also working to fill vacancies in some other top positions within the city right now, for more on all these issues, we're joined now by mayor xiang tao mayor. we always appreciate you taking the time. it's good to see you. we want to get to your efforts to fill some of those key vacancies in the city in just a moment. but let's talk if we can first about the
issue of public safety in oakland. it's really top of mind for a lot of people right now, following troubling series of crimes, some in the trestle glen neighborhood, which i know you're aware of. including a baby. struck by bullets shrapnel during that attempted robbery this week. there was a public meeting last night, and a lot of people made it clear that they just don't feel safe walking the streets in their own neighborhoods. what as mayor, what do you think of the concrete steps that need to be taken to improve people's sense of safety in oakland? absolutely you know, as a mom, my heart goes out to the little girl and her family. i cannot imagine. imagine how scary it is for that family or anybody who has gone through this, you know, mind you my home was broken into where my son was home by himself, and they looked at him and continue to rob my house while he was still there. and so this is very personal for me. and, um, you know, this is something that we're working on with chief
alison as well, too. we know that the response needs to be there, but we also need to work with our interagency. these as well and i've had a conversation with the governor is just yesterday about working with chp as well, too. and so it's going to be all hands on deck. but at the same time, you know we can't do this without having a regional efforts because we're seeing that it's people who are coming from outside of oakland into oakland, and we're seeing it happen all around in the bay area region as well, and there's talk about about increasing patrols, obviously, in some of these key neighborhoods where you have the problems, there's also a discussion about potentially the city, putting up cameras to try to deter crime and help to solve some of these crimes. do you support that idea? i absolutely do support support that, um, you know, i i've been very straightforward about that. that is something that i'm working on to ensure that we can do. um obviously, here in the city of oakland, we have many different things. um you know, hopes that we have to jump through in order to make sure that we are being
responsible. and so that's something that i'm working on with the council members and with the chief as well to mayor as part of this, you fire chief armstrong in february. what is the status of the search for a new chief? how wide. is that net that's being cast and do you yourself? have a short list of candidates. so for the police chief, it is the responsibility of the police commission to actually conduct that search. and so it's my understanding they have started the process of conducting that search. from that search, they will recommend three of the top candidates to me, and then i could either choose to, um, except one of those names or i can decline all of those names and have the process starts over again. but it does not start with my office. it starts with the police commission to find a new police chief, and i want to be very clear that chief alison is the interim police chief, and he has had decades of europe in the department and not just that, but he was prior to be interim police chief. he was t, meaningr
two in the department as well, too, so he's very capable and has done great work under his time as the interim police chief . alright, you also assume you're going to have a vacancy in the fire chief position here . we know that the fire chief reginald freeman has decided. i did to resign his position that will be effective starting next month, and he just so happened to join us yesterday afternoon on the four here, and he talked about how tough this decision was for him. let's let's listen here briefly to what the chief had to say. it was a very difficult decision. the hardest thing i've done in my career is leaving the oakland firefighters , but it was by far the best decision for me and my family. and he says, a personal decision for him and his family and one that he wanted to make to move back east for role in the private sector. how do you do you feel this role in the fire department and who? what sort of candidate or are you looking
for? here is the fire department struggles with funding issues and staffing issues? absolutely you know, we're going to miss chief freeman so much. i had a great working relationship with chief freeman. but obviously when it comes to your family family comes first. and so i know that he has a lot of family in the east coast. this actually will fall into the purview of our new city administrator, justin johnson, who will be working with me to really do a national national search for our next, um, chief of the fire department. what i'm looking for is somebody who understands wildfire prevention, someone who can work with the staffing levels that we are constrained under. especially during this historic budget deficit where we have $360 million in deficit and so and not just that, but make sure that it's somebody who community can trust. you know that's incredibly important for me. and so i'm excited to work with our new city administrator, justin johnson, to make sure that we have the right person in that position. mayor shifting gears here is something we've
been talking about on this show the a's and their struggle to find funding from the government there in the vata as they look to move to las vegas if the a's were to come back to the city of oakland, whether under this ownership or someone different would those negotiations reopen here? and how close are you to a new ballpark here? if that is the case absolutely in a heartbeat. you know, i always said that you know if the a's and dave cable or john fisher were to call me that i would pick up the phone call, i want there to be in a stadium at howard terminal, and what that means is that we were actually very close to a deal and whether it be under the currently ownership or a new ownership. we are ready. we are ready to move forward with negotiations again . and once things are signed off , i would tell you that i'm excited that it would take about two years before we break. round and so with that being said, you know, i really hope that, um, you know that they'll play ball. mayor do you think the vegas deal is in trouble? you know, um i can't say right because i've
gone through the same process with the oakland a's here in the city of oakland. and so who knows? who knows what what's what? who knows which the truth. okay alright. appreciate you taking the time. oakland mayor xiang tao, thanks for joining us. thank you. the man accused of killing cash. app founder bob lee was back into san francisco courtroom earlier today for arraignment, and he pleaded not guilty. fema momeni is charged with murder with a special allegation that he used a knife as a weapon. lee's family members were in court as well this morning as momentous attorney entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf. according to court documents. the two men knew each other and they were in a dispute over momentous sister. here's attorney. asked for his release. the judge said momeni was a threat to the community and ordered that he remain in custody without bail. attorney and the prosecutor are set to be back in court tomorrow to schedule a preliminary hearing and we'll have much more on
